Chelsea close in on Everton's Ross Barkley

Sam Allardyce admitted on Thursday that Everton remained resigned to Barkley's departure from Goodison Park, where he rose through the ranks to the first team.

Conte is seeking cover for Alvaro Morata and has never been convinced by current understudy Michy Batshuayi, and talks between the Premier League champions and Carroll's entourage are said to have already begun.
